  • Only two rounds have been staged in the Southern Hemisphere (Sydney 2002 and Auckland 2012) and Greg Hancock has won them both.
  • We have to remember too Andreas Jonsson. Last year, he won Round 6, was 2nd to Jaroslaw Hampel after a photo finish in Round 7, then won Round 8. He so very nearly joined the list and could have joined Tricks and Crumpy on the Triple!

  • Ken Nicholson:

    "This is a very interesting article by Tracy Holmes, but I wonder if it truly represents the moral victors. Thanks to a 'quirk' of the GP system, the winner of the round is not necessarily the one who leaves with the most points. Take that into account, then Andreas Jonsson would indeed be a triple winner. But the really unlucky rider in that respect must be Fredrik Lindgren. Twice he has top scored, but that gold medal continues to elude him. On the other side of the coin, perhaps one of the most fortunate riders on the night must be Rune Holta. He took advantage of Freddie’s first missed opportunity and walked away top dog despite scoring five points fewer."
